Photography tour around the coast of Brittany!

A couple of weeks ago I was traveling trough out the Normandy region and spend a lot of times near the coast! It was a rocky coast with a view sandy beach! I love rocks near water because i love to shoot long exposure photography! And as you probably know i live in a swamp.... (the Netherlands) so no rocks here! Just sand, peat and clay! So that's

In the beginnings of April there was a phenomenon that is called snow... The whole winter period we didn't have any but April fools day it finally came.

It took me a while but here is my last post of my road trip trough out the Benelux! Today we ended up in Luxembourg, there is a trail trough out a nature reserve  called the Multilateral trail!

Regional Natural Park Ballons des Vosges!

Yes, we are in France! After some hiking trips to waterfalls we get bored a seeing them! Is that just me or can you relate to that? We did look for waterfalls to visit in the national park Vosges in France because we were close to the France boarder but instead of that we looked for castles. On google maps we found a place in the northern part of t

Walking in the "Les Haute Fagnes" The high Fens!

Walking in the "Les Haute Fagnes" The high Fens!

The High Fens is an unique area in Belgium. This raised moor plateau is located in the eastern part of Belgium and with his highs of 695 meters (2275 feet) is the most highest point of the country. In the winter months this often results in snow! Then its a good place for some cross-country skiing, but the rest of the year its an excellent place to
